It seems like the time to ask would be after the 31st has passed. They aren't acting differently than they said they would until that point. Also there is no chance that the entire admissions office is taking a two week vacation right when decisions are starting to role out, so them not coming back till the 7th is BS.

Glad to find someone still awake. I have waited so long that I became to think they might have forgotten me. So I asked them whether I can send sth about my GPA. I even highlighted in my email Two days ago that I applied for ED. And they soon responded yes. Now it seems every EDer left. Only I am trembling, not knowing what happened at all. I just checked their website, saying the office will be closed between 24th and 3th. They must hate me so much to torture me like this....

FTFY. Go to the Penn Insights part of the website. They said they office is closed from the 24th through the 3rd, however they will still be reviewing applications during that break. So it's not BS. They're still working, but it also says they will not be releasing decisions again until the 7th. If someone hasn't heard back yet and they're ED, then maybe they didn't get to all the EDs and they will make a couple exceptions. But if you look at the website that's exactly what it says.

True. That's what they say on the website. Thanks for you guys I feel a little bit relieved. The funny thing is that I might be among one of the first few batches : went complete on early oct., UCR on Oct 28 for the first time, status updAted on Nov. 9. Now I will go to a party and secretly pray that if sb really would take a look at my file during the vacation they would do that with a mercy and very merry heart. Good luck to everybody still waiting!

If that was your first UCR date it just means they haven't gotten around to your second review yet.

Hey guys, does everyone have a section on their status checker under "fees" that says "seat deposit" because I just noticed it on mine and was wondering if it was there all along or just came up... thanks!

According to their website, "Although the Admissions Committee will continue to review applications during the break, no decisions will be released prior to January 7." Oddly, though, I remember someone on here mentioning that they got a decision at some point during this break.

Is there an amount due listed or is the amount just zero? I think when you're admitted, the amount due changes to $500.
